With the right policy, legislation and practices in place, Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) countries can achieve fair and effective migration governance fostering a positive impact of international migration in the economic growth and development of countries of origin, transit and destination. ILO’s work on Labour Migration provides to its tripartite constituents and partners with an integrated approach where migration is considered as an enabling development factor.
Migration today is largely linked to the search for a job and better wages. Even if employment is not the primary driver, it usually features in the migration process at some point. Thus the importance of involving World of Work actors (Ministries of Labour, workers and employers’ organisations) and labour market institutions in fostering fair and effective labour migration governance, overall.
Mixed migration refers to complex migratory population movements that include refugees, asylum seekers, victims of trafficking, migrant workers and other migrants, as opposed to migratory population movements that consist entirely of one category of individuals. The mixed nature of these movements, consisting of different groups of migrants with differing motivations to travel and different protection needs, makes it necessary to put in place migration policies, legislation and referral mechanisms that respond to individual needs.
